ArtPower: Alsarah & the Nubatones Afterparty
Thursday, February 22, 2018
Doors 8pm / Show 8pm
FREE

Join us for an After Party at The Loft. Beverages will be available to purchase from Zanzibar.

Born in Sudan, raised in Yemen, and now based in Brooklyn, Alsarah is not only a gifted musician and singer but also a self-proclaimed practitioner of East African retro-pop. Alsarah & the Nubatones was born out of many dinner conversations between Alsarah and percussionist Rami El-Aasser about Nubian songs of return, modern migration patterns, and the cultural exchanges between Sudan and Egypt. Soon the project expanded to include Armenian American oud player Haig Manoukian and French-born, Togo-raised bass player Mawuena Kodjovi. Since their first show in 2011, the group has performed nationally and internationally at many prestigious festivals and venues to audiences varying in age and ethnicity, proving that soul crosses all cultural and linguistic barriers.

Gospel, soul, and R&Binspired artist Liz Vices music features dynamic, beautiful vocals and classically influenced lyrics that reference her deep-rooted spirituality. After overcoming a debilitating autoimmune disease in her youth, Vice found music offered a new lease on life. I didnt think I was going to live past 20 years old, she says. Its a surprising revelation considering the vitality and energy she exudes on stage, but it brings context to the utter joy, gratefulness, humility, and magic that imbue her soulful voice throughout Theres a Light, her debut album.
